Kim Kardashian takes home the first Influencer Award from the CFDA's and claps back at a former publicist.

Kim Kardashian is a fashion icon, sorry, haters, it's just true. 

 

The reality star received the very first Influencer Award at the event held in New York City. Kardashian is the original influencer, and it's only fitting that she won the award. 

 

With over 200 million social media followers and her own cosmetics, fragrance, and technology businesses, no one influences fans like Kardashian. 

 

A single Instagram post from the social media star is valued at $500,000, and her KKW Beauty line is selling out fast with an estimated $100 million in revenue within the year. 

I'm kind of shocked that I'm winning a fashion award when I'm naked most of the time. This is seriously such an honor.

"I'm kind of shocked that I'm winning a fashion award when I'm naked most of the time," the KKW designer joked. "This is seriously such an honor."

 

She recalled a moment when a former publicist said she'd never be a fashion icon. The publicist asked her what her goals were and Kardashian said she wanted to be on the cover of a magazine. The publicist then told her, "Let's get some realistic goals because that will never happen." 

 

Kim K, the shade queen, sent her an autographed copy of her Vogue cover later.
